drank Bananas Foster by 52teas
1199 tasting notes

I have had a headache for seven hours and I can’t get rid of it. I’ve been drinking tons of liquid, I took magnesium, I’ve been drinking water with a potassium/b vitamin mix added to it, I took ibuprofen, oh and Sebastian is slamming his mirror around aka not helping.

I remembered I liked this iced so I cold steeped it. I love it. I can definitely taste rum in there along with banana and cinnamon. Still the cinnamon is kind of strong. But this is so good, I’m pretty sure to kill this headache I will drink it all by tonight.

And sadly I have almost drank it all. I hate that this is “sadly” because I should be really psyched it’s almost gone and I have one less tea, but I love this one!

I hate lingering headaches. Hope you feel better soon!

I know what you mean. I was sad when I finished my pouch of it. IT WAS SO GOOD! Hope you feel better. Headaches are the worst.

I can’t function with a headache. The only thing that seems to work for me when I have one is alternating between an ice pack (usually a bag of frozen peas or corn), & a heating pad. You have my sympathy!

JustJames

i was going to say… an ice pack can help me, also something like powerade (yes i know, ghastly) because headaches can be a sign of bad electrolytes.

Thank you guys, I somehow completely managed while at work for a few hours (thankfully nothing but sitting there for the first few days). I know it is most definitely an electrolyte issue. I think suddenly having so much sugar did not help things out. When I got home, it was so bad I tried to cook for myself and failed miserably (you know, pretty much near burnt on the outside but somehow lukewarm in the center, NOPE) so at least I got myself to Chipotle and home and since then it’s been worse!

I’ve got a pack of frozen wild blueberries on my head now. Definitely feels like it’s helping.

When you’re done using them as an icepack you can drop them in the blender & make a smoothie :)

momo

That’s why I have them! I do for once have everything necessary to make one too.

mixing molasses into hot water with a pinch of salt acts as a very good ad hoc electrolyte remedy… but if you can’t stomach molasses then not so much.

momo

Ahh I don’t own any, I think if it’s not better in the morning I will get some of that G2 gatorade, I don’t mind that stuff and it might be more well rounded in electrolytes than what I’m adding to water at present. Thankfully it’s starting to subside but I think it’s because I finally hit my last resort of taking stronger pain meds.

JustJames

yeah, i’m more likely to pop a cup of tea than pain pills, myself. =0) but sometimes chemicals save time.

Yikes I hope you feel better soon.

momo

Yep, it was coming up on 5 hours and at that point time to just do it. It’s pretty much gone now too and thankfully there’s no side effects of it. Yay!

JustJames
